It purifies the blood and has healing and soothing properties.

* Honey: Make honey a part of your beauty regime to get a natural glow. Honey is seen as an ideal natural ingredient to do away with skin dryness. Women with sensitive skin can prepare a face mask made up of brown sugar, honey, olive oil and lemon juice.

* Fruits: Fruits like mango and pomegranate can be useful to clear scars and marks on your face and even to nourish your skin. Watermelon is good, if you mix it with milk powder and put it on the skin. It will help to cool the skin.

* Anti-fungal powder: Use an anti-fungal powder on all body folds to avoid any fungal infection.

* Moisturiser: Give a thumbs up to light moisturisers, though its excessive use will work against the skin as it will just sit heavily on the face and prevent skin from breathing.

* Calamine lotion: It can be used to treat anything from sunburns to itchy bug bites or rashes.
